Greetings everyone. I hope your summer is going well. Comrade Tena and I have just returned from a week’s visit to Newfoundland. While there we visited Legion Branch 1 in St. John’s and Legion Branch 56 in Pleasantville and bringing greetings from our Branch. We were intrigued to find out that Branch 56 had its own permanent chef who cooked breakfast, lunch and dinner until closing every day. We both enjoyed two fabulous meals of cod and cods’ tongues. While talking with the bar steward we learned that she was from Arnprior and that I had buried one of her relatives. It’s a small world. At our last General Meeting we welcomed some new members who have transferred over from the Arnprior Legion branch. They are certainly an asset to our branch. As we are heading into the fall season I sincerely hope that all legion members will strive to attend our General Meetings beginning on September 28. Enjoy the rest of your summer and keep safe.            President Bruce Ferguson
